The Alliance Française of Durban will be showing the movie Molière on May 3 at 17h30 for 18h00. This is a French movie with English subtitles.

This essential piece of cinema for romantics everywhere follows the fictionalized footsteps of what may have inspired one of France's literary greats, Molière, to pen his infamous masterpiece Tartuffe.

Rotting away in prison and in a mountain of debt, Molière's only hope of freedom is to help the buffoonish Mr Jourdain seduce a beautiful young widow behind his wife's back. Disguised as a priest, he moves in with the Jourdain family to begin a calamitous, hilarious and ultimately romantic set of adventures.

Entrance is free. The movie is suitable only for persons of 12 years and over. Food and refreshments available at cash bar (Fusion French Café - bookings on 031 312 9582)
